RTI Sample Program Guide
The RTI module allows for full control over all models of the Mirage Media Server, providing two-way transport and browsing of all media available to the server.
What You'll Need
Open the sample program (available at http://www.autonomic-controls.com/documents/RTI/Autonomic_MMS_RTI_22.214.171.124.zip). Convert the XP-3 to the correct model processor if necessary. Switch out our iPad license for a valid license for the processor in use by opening File->System Properties->RTiPanel Tab and adding a valid license. Next, open the processor and navigate to the Drivers tab. Select the Mirage Media Server driver.
Driver Configuration Options
Change the TCP address to the address of the MMS and select the instance on the MMS the program should control. The default names of the instances are hardcoded and will always work. An MMS will always respect the default names of its instances given that it is running at least firmware version 4.5. For the best experience, the MMS should run at least firmware version 5.0.14441.0.
The sample program uses the System Startup event to run the Communications->Connect driver command at startup.
At this point, upload the sample program to the processor. Open the RTiPanel app on the iPad and point it at the processor. The driver should automatically connect. It will display the currently playing item and allow for browsing.
Digging Into Functionality
Clearly, the sample layout includes a fullscreen keyboard and fulllscreen popup messagebox. In order to dig into the sample program from an integration standpoint, those layers will have to be peeled away. We've included the objects for the keyboard and messagebox on separate pages so those on page 1 can simply be deleted if need be.
